Republican Colorado state Rep. JoAnn Windholz claims Planned Parenthood is the “instigator” of the violence at its Colorado Springs clinic that left three dead and nine injured.
In a statement provided to the Colorado Independent and posted to her Facebook page, Rep. Windholz rails against Planned Parenthood, even going so far as to claim Planned Parenthood is the “real culprit” in the terrorist attack:
Violence is never the answer, but we must start pointing out who is the real culprit. The true instigator of this violence and all violence at any Planned Parenthood facility is Planned Parenthood themselves. Violence begets violence. So Planned Parenthood: YOU STOP THE VIOLENCE INSIDE YOUR WALLS.
By writing “Violence is never the answer, but…” Windholz implicitly blames Planned Parenthood for the terrorist attack at the Colorado clinic.
Late last week, Robert Lewis Dear, a Christian terrorist, shot and killed three and injured nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. When taken into custody Friday night, Dear told police: “No more baby parts.” The remark was an apparent allusion to heavily edited, deceptive and dishonest videos about Planned Parenthood designed to generate public outrage and political support for a campaign to defund the organization.
In her unhinged and malicious rant, Windholz references the discredited Center for Medical Progress video that falsely suggests Planned Parenthood is trafficking in baby body parts.
The following is Windholz’s statement in full:
Violence – Where it starts.
The freedoms we enjoy in the United States include those that were made up to fit the audience and unsubstantiated numerical support, specifically the right to an abortion. When a violent act happens at a Planned Parenthood (pph) facility (most recent in Colorado Springs) the left goes on “auto-pilot” blaming everyone insight when they should be looking in a mirror. Free Speech has brought to light the insidious selling of baby body parts (pph has no shame). These facts and overall mission of the abortion industry would easily send anyone over the hill who wasn’t rational.
The “war on women” is what pph began with Margaret Sanger and it has turned into a war on the family, especially children. It has changed children from a blessing to a commodity making it very hard to consider ourselves to be a civilized respectful rational society.
Violence is never the answer but we must start pointing out who is the real culprit. The true instigator of this violence and all violence at any pph facility, is pph themselves. Violence begets violence. So pph, YOU STOP THE VIOLENCE INSIDE YOUR WALLS. My question is, if abortions were free at pph, how long would they stay in business? Pro-Life organizations offer their caring services saving women and children for free every day and they clean up the mess that pph leaves behind.
Pray Daily for the women who abort, their children, and the providers.
Windholz’s statement expresses no sympathy for the victims of the terrorist attack. Instead, she tries to justify the shooting by blaming Planned Parenthood.
Recently Planned Parenthood has been the victim of a well financed and cynical campaign to smear the organization dedicated to healthy family planning and women’s reproductive health.
The Center for Medical Progress, a front for radical, anti-abortion, forced-birth extremists, has been running a highly orchestrated campaign to discredit Planned Parenthood and ultimately undermine legal and safe abortion.
Ultimately, those dishonest videos, along with the vitriolic and outrageous rhetoric from supposed “pro-life,” forced birth fanatics like Windholz, were a call to action, and an incitement to violence. A call apparently answered by a Christian terrorist named Robert Lewis Dear at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.
